A spiritual rambling…

June 20, 2008

I do believe that people often search for inner peace and spirituality within the comfort zone that they know. I have found that there are no boundaries to which one should feel confined. There is a vast amount of knowledge to be shared and benefit from, though often the label of one religion or another seems to discourage us from being open to other’s ideas or beliefs. Recently I was made aware of the belief system of Deepak Chopra, which I found interesting. I have found that many of his teachings are what I already practice in my life.

Chopra teaches a lifestyle that includes meditation, yoga, mindfulness in daily life, proper nutrition based on whole foods, detoxing through fasting, enemas, and massage, and abstinence from drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and junk food.

Chopra’s “Ten Keys to Happiness” are:

1. Listen to your body’s wisdom.
2. Live in the present, for it is the only moment you have.
3. Take time to be silent, to meditate.
4. Relinquish your need for external approval.
5. When you find yourself reacting with anger or opposition to any person or circumstance, realize that you are only struggling with yourself.
6. Know that the world “out there” reflects your reality “in here.”
7. Shed the burden of judgement.
8. Don’t contaminate your body with toxins, either food, drink, or toxic emotions.
9. Replace fear-motivated behavior with love-motivated behavior.
10. Understand that the physical world is just a mirror of a deeper intelligence.
